07:28 AM ET 10.15 | Will Ricky Nolasco again be squeezed from pitching in the playoffs? Zack Greinke could pitch Game 4 of the National League Championship Series on three days' rest. Before the game Monday, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said the results that night could alter the Dodgers' rotation. After the Dodgers' 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 3, Mattingly said [Nolasco] remained scheduled to pitch Tuesday. But Mattingly qualified his statement, adding, "For now." For what it's worth, Greinke is scheduled to speak at a Tuesday afternoon news conference in a time slot reserved for the next day's starting pitcher. Nolasco's turn was skipped in the division series, when Clayton Kershaw pitched in his place on three days' rest.

That would be a smart move!!!

Big win last night for the boys in blue. I don't trust Greinke on short rest. He's not Kershaw.

Mattingly's great fear is that Zack will be a couple of innings into the game and suddenly start screaming, "WOPNER! TIME FOR WOPNER!!!"

The Dodgers should pitch Nolasco to night. That would leave Greinke and Kershaw back to back

I would trust Nolasco even less.

I don't see LA winning three out of four what with the Cards solid pitching.

Possibly, if Alcran <sp?> shows up, or if Lou does his own Alcran

We all know Greinke is a moron.
